Admissions Tests: The ACT and SAT
You’ll need to take a standardized admissions test—either the ACT or SAT—to be considered for freshman admission to a UW System school. If you’re in high school, take the ACT or SAT in the spring of your junior year. To see the test scores different campuses require for incoming freshmen, visit the Admission Guidelines page. Requirements for transfer and nontraditional applicants vary from school to school; contact their admissions departments for details.
Multiple Test Scores
If you test more than once, admissions officers will look at your highest composite score when you apply.
Residual ACT Testing
Unable to take the ACT on a national testing day? These schools offer on-campus, or “residual,” testing, in which your score is reported only to the institution where you took the test:
UW-Eau Claire (tests administered on a case-by-case basis)
UW-Oshkosh (score may also be transferred to UW-Fond du Lac)
Contact each school’s testing or admissions office for details.
